Madame Vega's Boudoir
As of 2020, Fredrik Kinbom also does mastering work for other artists in his Berlin studio, Madame Vega’s Boudoir.
Using a hybrid chain of select analogue (vintage and modern) outboard hardware and industry-standard digital tools, mastering-grade DA/AD-conversion in an acoustically treated room, Fredrik puts decades of experience in - and passion for - music production into this final and vital part of the process of making a record.
Regardless if it’s a single track or a triple-vinyl LP, Fredrik would love to help you make your music sound its very best, applying technical attention-to-detail and skill, but most importantly his ears and his creative experience as a musician and artist.
Fredrik masters for digital, CD (DDP) and vinyl (pre-master), and offers a no-strings-attached test master of a track. For more info, mastering rates, or if you have any questions, please contact Fredrik via e-mail HERE.
"Fredrik is a hyper-sensitive masterer whose work
comes from a musician's mind and universe."
- Matti Bye (award-winning composer/pianist)
"…just the right amount of disco […] Indeed, the whole thing sounds fantastic - it has a real drive, a sense of momentum it didn't quite have before. Amazing!"
- Craig Schuftan (of Ducks!)
